Remarks & Notes 
Sometimes the best actions photos are taken under terrible conditions. In this case, an eastbound empty unit coal train is rolling through a heavy rain storm en route to Williamson, WV, along the NS main line. This was once the Scioto Division of the Norfolk & Western, where Class A 2-6-6-4s like the 1218 routinely handled 190-car coal trains westward along this same route. Today, modern GE and EMD six-axle motor power like these handle even heavier trains.

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, and rainbows.

Pace and pan shots of trains. If you're not in the locomotive cab or on-board the train, it's the next best thing to being there.
